Design of a Reduced Footprint Microwave Wilkinson Power Divider With EM Verification

This application example describes how to design a microwave Wilkinson power divider with a reduced footprint using NI AWR Design Environment, specifically Microwave Office circuit design and AXIEM 3D planar electromagnetic (EM) analysis software. The entire design presented below covers schematic entry to physical printed circuit board (PCB) implementation, as well as final EM verification. Steps include circuit design using ideal transmission lines, impact of a microstrip implementation, equivalent physical layout of the design, and circuit compaction.
